I like 78-01-22. Although not labeled as "Space" there's Drums- The Other One- Jerry's "Close Encounters" (kinda sorta space)-St Stephen. I've always thought the tune following "space" was way important to define (after the fact) the purpose and context of space within the entire show. And this show fits nicely IMO.

I think space was more impressive at shows where you could see the sound pass through your clothes. I just don't have access to bone shaking sound systems.

My fav space (defaults to including drums AND before & after transitions) is:

I like the balaphon/marimba section but more from 6:30 in drums to after the song is born. The Beam and Garcia are great and the next song fits the mood but I usually fade to another show quick.

Also interesting, and again in context, are these (from a pretty strong week+):

For me the best part of the last few years of the GD was the space. If I can get it together I can add some other picks. This one's not great but it just popped yesterday:

You're right it does make a huge difference if you have a sub-woofer the size of a coffee table when you listen to these shows! 4-28-91 is a good space. I don't know if the tapes will do it justice but I was there in vegas and they made slot machine sounds that sounded like they were coming from here and then over there and it just kept goin' and after a while everybody just started lookin' at eachother as if to say "are you getting this?!" It was good. But yeah, I'm lookin' for those drums and spaces where they are just ON and extra freaky....

6-30-85 is a classic one with Brent doing some crazy shit and of course 12-31-89 is pure insanity with the chanting monks...
